    whilst leafing through my Ig codex i noticed something strange,
    IG have two HQ slots available to them
    When fielding a platoons no matter the size i have to take a command squad.
    Now because i have to attach a command squad to a platoon does this mean you can only take a maximum of two platoons, one for each HQ choice,
    this equates in total to only 110 men.
    Am i reading this right or have i missed something

    Umm...

    Your HQ choices dont have anything to do with your troop choices.
    The codex says that a platoon consists a command squad and 2-5 squads, these command squads arent HQ's.
    You dont attach a command squad from your HQ, you buy one as part of each platoon.

    But just for the record, you cant have more than one command platoon in an IG army.
    So it all comes to 1 command platoon, and up to 6 infantry platoons.

    I think theres an article about platoons in the article section, it migh explain something.

    <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:red'>Chaos will fall </span></span>

    <span style='color:blue'>tyranids will rule the Galaxy with a bloody claw </span>

    Its a shame but the second HQ slot really doesn&#39;t get used unless you take some kind of allies. Inquisitors and retinues can be quite popular but if your a guard purist then your stuck with wasting a HQ slot which is fine since we&#39;re all about tanks and infantry anyway....
    HALO 2 - Sure those first few games where you wipe out the opposition with the rocket launcher, overshield and camoflage are fun but after a while you start looking for something more. Next it has to be death by plasma sword or sticky bomb, till pretty soon only clobbering your opponent with the butt of your rifle will do. The more difficult something is to do, the more fun it is when you pull it off. For IG players the word for this is Mobility

    I'm actually going to use a deathwatch kill team- thus using my 2nd HQ squad. I'm giving them a Rhino too, 'cause Rhinos just look so cool!
    Imperial XIV Corps:

    22nd Emperor's Rangers- 0%
    291st Catachan- 0%
    2nd Naval Regiment- 0%
